Compare Ski and Snowboard Hire for Cauterets >


Cauterets is a small town at the entrance to the Pyrenees National Park.
Cauterets is an historical Pyrenean spa town which, like its more famous neighbour Lourdes, found fame for healing powers of the local waters. Cauterets is great value for money and there is a good choice of restaurants and bars, although its not a real party town.

There are 36km of pistes which are accessed by gondola from the town.

Whilst the downhill skiing and snowboarding is fairly limited Cauterets is a mecca for cross country skiers and the routes are spectacular. The cross country ski-ing, snow shoeing and tobogganing area is a 7km drive away in a separate area in the National Park.

It is close to Pau and Lourdes airport and a reasonable drive from Toulouse (find flights) and this makes it good as a weekend venue, and car hire is recommended. This allows other nearby resorts to be visited as well.
